Lot Essay

Lundy Island rises approximately 400 feet out of the Bristol Channel off the point of Hartand Point, North Devon. Lundy is famous for its birds, especially the puffin. The name Lund-ey is Norse for Puffin Island.

Lundy is very popular for various groups of people including birdwatchers, climbers, divers and radio amateurs. Groups of bell ringers regularly come over to ring the bells of St. Helena's church which have been fully restored.
